Would you take advice from someone who, unless a clear profit of £105 is achieved by tomorrow evening, will have ended April with a monthly P&L shown in brackets? No, thought not.
So rather than offer advice, I will point you in the direction of a couple of recent posts from those with more experience and days in front of the computer than I - Leon The Fixer and Cassini. Worthwhile reading.
Analysis of my month gives me the following list to take forward into, hopefully, a better May.
i. My main profit stream has been limited by the tennis circuit moving to Europe, where playing hours coincide with my working hours. Answer - shrug shoulders, take what I can from the evening matches, remember that I earn money whilst working.
ii. The football silly season. Note for 2010 - stop pre-game footy betting at the end of March. Come back in mid September. I will limit my betting until then to Scandinavian soccer ( different stage of season ).
iii. Analysis of my P&L identifies an unsurprising red figure for the combined total of the following sports - Horse Racing, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker. Analysis of a longer term P&L would certainly add darts and cricket to this list. Answer - read my own previous posts! I know I should stick to my specialised areas, but just get tempted, particularly as now I'm only playing for fun.
iv. I'll get more satisfaction from a steady small profit than regular ups and downs. Keep this thought in mind whenever I open Betfair.
Sorry, must rush, got £105 to win urgently.... ( kidding, honest ).
